Still waiting for spring

More warm days, cool mornings; some sunny
days and some drippy days for the next 10 days. 
It is time  to plant!  We must be patient.  In 
2009, 2010 and 2011, we didn't even get into
our gardens until the first of July, each of those

The insects really like this weather.

Be aware of ants, termites, aphids, radish root
maggots, bill bugs, asparagus beetles and codling
moth is expected to show up any day now. 
Place pheromone traps out int he orchards ASAP.

The continued wet and warm - increases the scab
on apples and pears.  Protective sprays are import. 
Call your local Master Gardner program for
control options.
